whenever you delete a user all their posts turn into guest posts. AFAIK there is no way to get them back, as you don't know which guest posts were his.

the only way is if you had disabled guest posting, and every post was by a registered user. then you could update the database and make guest posts this user.

otherwise, they are just guest posts.

All his posts have user_name "his name" and user_id "-1" (anonymous)

I still know wich posts are his, but how do I give him back his posts?

Would changing the user ID to 0 (registered) work? Since his username's still there and all. . .

USED_ID = 0 doesnt excist, I'm user_id 1 (or 2) becuz I registered first. But when I changed his used_id back to 46 and deleted his User_name, wich has to be empty again, nothing happens.
